Subject: I remember this show.
I saw this show. It was my senior year of high school. Scalped an orchestra seat for $80 which was a week's pay for me. I remember Billy Cobham on the drums, which was a bonus because I was a fan of the Mahavishnu Orchestra.

One good thing is that they knew they were recording for live albums which probably added focus.

I will add that I Been All Around This World is my favorite Jerry song and it was amazing seeing it. It was also very interesting seeing them play The Other One, which was a rarely-played throwback to the psychedelic days.

My entry point to a crappy search engine provided by the archive. I've been to more than 100 dead shows...i've reported on at least 50 here...and yet it is such a PAIN in the arse to find my posts on archive.org its really incredible...

Subject: An awesome show
There is nothing bad to say about any show from this run. I have all of them and I always recomend these shows to a first time listener.The set lists are similar but the music is great. Sit back with some good headphones and enjoy..

Subject: My 1st show !!
I'm so glad to see these shows finally uploaded....I've had them on tape for years...nice to get a digital copy....Yes, This was my first Grateful Dead experience...I was a week from turning 15...I was the young pup in a older crowd...and the 4 days in line to get the tickets to this show and the 31st almost landed me in perminate grounding from my DAD...We camped for 4 days to get these tickets...and I played hooky from high school...My parents didnt know where I was for the 4 days...the police had been called...I WAS a WANTED KID!!!
Needlesstosay.....I was grounded for like 6 months, and the only time I was allowed out was to see the shows...Boy did I party my ass off...
Ya see...my mom had done just about the same thing to my grandparents about 40 yrs earlier,except it was ole Blue Eyes...Frank Sinatra...so my dad was convinced by my mom to let me go to the shows...then I could finish my grounding...DAD agreed...whewww!

ps. The grounding never really lasted..beyond Xmas time that year....Happy to tell that story

Subject: Get it for the Drums alone!
I'm surprised there hasn't been a review of this yet. I'll provide a more detailed review upon a thorough listening fo this show, but I downloaded it for one big reason: The Truckin' > Drums > Space > Other One is from the USA Network's broadcast of Dead Ahead. For some reason, they didn't include this segment on the main (shorter) release of the movie.

During Drums > The Other One, the great jazz drummer Billy Cobham sits in with the band. This leads to one of the best Drums segments out there. To see it on video is really something; there comes a point where all three drummers are swarming over The Beast like salmon going upstream. Truly something to behold. The transition to The Other One is great, although sitting here listening to the download, it is quite evident that the video segment cut out some of the drums, once Cobham starts playing the talking drum.

Also, kudos to Jim Wise for another great audience recording.

Further details as I listen more.
